Bathing is part of the day to day routine with cats. Cat’s tongues are covered by tiny barbs which are perfect for removing dirt and other debris from their coats. They’re also perfect for grabbing excess fur, which they then swallow. All that grooming leads to the ingestion of fur which can eventually lead to the an unpleasant hairball. Hairballs can be painful and uncomfortable for our feline friends.
Cat hairball symptoms
When a large amount of fur becomes trapped in your cat’s stomach, it gets regurgitated back up in the form of a hairball.
Fortunately there are a few natural ways you can help your cat prevent hairballs from happening.
1. Ultra Oil Skin and Coat Supplement
Ultra Oil lubricates the top part of the digestive system (throat) and the bottom part (intestines) so it comes out one end with no trouble. The main ingredient in Ultra Oil is hempseed which aids with symptoms such as nausea. Our Hempseed and sardine and anchovy blend nourishes the skin and coat to help reduce shedding and help move ingested hair along the digestive tract smoothly.
Regular brushing removes much of the excess fur that would normally be swallowed and regurgitated.
3. Digestive Aids & Fiber
Adding digestive enzymes to your cat’s food can help dramatically reduce hairballs. The enzymes actually help break down the consumed hair in the digestive system and allow for easier passage
